The plot even seems like a simple enough slice of small-town drama as it follows Mary as she moves to a new town following her improbable survival of a drag-racing crash.
Predictably, Carnival of Souls spends far too much time dancing around the concept than really indulging in it and by the end of it seems like an especially sub-par Twilight Zone episode.
